Abstract [en]

How students who participate in a project-centered, internationally distributed, university course in computer systems taught jointly by two universities understand a network protocol, TCP, is described in this paper. Insights into students' understanding are gained through an empirical phenomenographic research approach. The use of phenomenography as a research approach makes it possible to learn about computer science, as it is experienced by the students. Some aspects that indicate good learning outcomes are identified, such as being capable of understanding a protocol in different ways and of making relevant choices between the ways it could be experienced according to the context in which it appears. Based on these results a discussion on learning and teaching is developed.
